“The Magicians” is fearless. The SyFy show takes outlandish risks, such as this week’s musical sequence which finds Eliot (Hale Appleman), Margo (Summer Bishil), and the rest of the court singing “One Day More” from Les Misérables in preparation for Eliot’s duel against King Idri (Leonard Roberts).
Appleman told EW:
This is the king daddy ‘what the f—‘ moment. I think it’s fun and whimsical and ridiculous and out of nowhere on some level.
And it was awesome.
